Moonstone gem tree

This gem tree consists of two parts.

Celestite, also known as Celestine, is revered for its high frequency and Divine energies, and is known as a powerful healing crystal. Celestite has been called a “teacher for the New Age”, as it will connect one with the Angelic realms, allowing for the free-flow of these higher frequencies into the Crown and Third-Eye Chakras, and also down into the Throat Chakra for expression.  Bringing mental calm and clarity in the midst of any chaotic circumstance, Celestite can allow one to easily flow through a traumatic period and still come out on top. (From Healing Crystals)

The base of the tree is a celestine cluster. Celestine must be kept out of the sunlight otherwise it will lose its colours. It’s also quite fragile. Celestine really is a high-maintenance stone!

Legendary as the Traveler’s Stone, Moonstone is especially protective of those who travel by night or upon the water when the moon is shining. Frequent travelers should keep one in the glove compartment for safe night driving and as protection against road rage. Moonstone opens the heart to nurturing qualities as well as assisting in the acceptance of love. It is an excellent crystal for first or new love, and is a comforting talisman if love must be kept a secret. It was also believed to be able to reunite loved ones who had parted in anger. (From Crystal Vaults.)

Moonstone, a versatile stone! I had leftover chips from the time I made a moonstone tree of life and had been saving them until I found a suitable cluster. Celestine was a nice choice as it had a similar colour but with an ethereal blue tint to it. This time, I tried to make it more “tree-like” by adding twists to the trunk and spreading out the branches more.

Also, I used a new tube of superglue as my old one has lost its clear colour. It was horrible! I kept sticking to myself a lot and the wire wasn’t sticking down properly… I finally managed it by using a pair of thin pliers to hold the roots down.
